One of the defining choices on what high-end motherboard to purchase is what multiple-GPU solution you want to use NVIDIA's SLI or ATI's Crossfire platform. Once you make that choice, the motherboard choices are limited, as you can't run Crossfire on a SLI system and vice versa. Hopefully, with the merger of AMD and ATI, this will change, as the relationship between NVIDIA and AMD has always been great.

The M2R32-MVP is a good solid choice without all the frills that a Deluxe or an ASUS Premium Edition board would carry. Things like a Wi-Fi AP Solo or extra SATA ports are not included, but the pricing should reflect this. Feature-wise, the M2R32-MVP board fits the bill, with 10 possible USB ports and two possible Firewire ports with brackets. The external SATA connector is another plus and overall the board is well rounded enough to satisfy many users who need functionality, but not overkill features.
